rosemary sabo brown will be accepting this medal and we'll go live as soon as the president arrives. as we await the ceremony, bring back our panel and continue the political conversation. with me in new york is joanne reed and in washington michelle cottle and julien epstein. julian, what do you think of mitt romney hitching his wag ans to john boehner, the most disastrous speaker in recent history? >> well, again, they're looking for cards to play, and the card he is looking to play is the debt reduction card. it is a cynical card because i pointed out in the last segment it is like the arsonist complaining of the fire. it is like the orphan, the kids that killed his parents and complaining they were an orphan. republicans had a 5 to $6 trilt i don't know sur plaus projected when bush took office and turned that into an $11 trillion debt and represents more than two-thirds of what our current debt is right now and boehner and romney are looking at the political polls that show that the debt is a potent issue for some independents and that is true p it is, but if you look at the way the r
